Diuretic use should, if possible, be stopped before using Zestril. If not, your physician may give an initial dose of 5 mg under supervision before any further medication is indicated.

People with kidney disorders must be carefully monitored, and dosages will be adjusted to the individual's needs, depending on kidney function.

For this condition, Zestril is usually prescribed along with diuretics and digitalis. The recommended starting dose is 5 mg once a day, with the first dose taken under your doctor's supervision. The doctor may increase the dose by up to 10 mg at intervals of no less than 2 weeks. Typical long-term dosages range from 5 to 40 mg taken once a day.
